Melissa McCarthy is ready to say adios to the small screen and become a full-fledged movie star,” claims Star.

According to the tabloid, the Emmy winner is “ditching” her CBS show “Mike & Molly” because she “knows she can rake in more money focusing on feature films.”

A so-called “friend” tells Star, “Melissa loves the sitcom, but this is a business decision.”

“Her career is on fire now, and everyone around her is telling her that she needs to capitalize on it while she can,” says the supposed insider.

If this story sounds familiar, it’s because the magazine’s sister publication the National Enquirer tried peddling a similar rumor back in 2012.

It wasn’t accurate then, and it still isn’t two years later.

A rep for McCarthy tells Gossip Cop exclusively that there’s “no truth” to the Star claim.
